# Desicion maths d1 - january 2011 paper question 4c has a mistake?! watch

1. Our teacher gave us a breakdown of which questions we got wrong and which questions we got right and everyone got Q4C wrong.
At first i thought it was just crappy teaching or lack of revision but i attempted the question again (for revision because im re-sitting) and got it wrong again, so checked the mark scheme online.

Heres where i got the mark scheme from;
http://www.mystudytable.com/post13968.html

The MS says;
C]e.g.
D – 2 = A – 6 = B – 1 = K – 4 M1
Change status D = 2 – A = 6 – B = 1 – K = 4 A1
A = 6 B = 1 D = 2 J = 3 K = 4 M = 5

notes;

1M1: Path from D to 4 or 1 (or vice versa)
1A1: CAO including change status (stated or shown),but only penalise once per
question, chosen path clear.
2A1: CAO must ft from stated paths, diagram ok. Must have both M’s.

But when i look at the question, A is not connected to 6 at all - not in the bipartite or in the improved matching :/

i just keep on getting a cycle of; D=5-M=2-A=5 AND D=2-A=5-M=2

Sorry for the long winded explanation, any ideas? have i got it wrong??

I'LL THUMBS UP THE FIRST WHO REPIES

Thanks

It could still be wrong, 100% UMS marks doesn't mean 100% raw mark, she could have just got everything else right and been really lucky to get 100 UMS.
I haven't looked at the question though so I don't know ^^;
7. I think I remember that question from the exam and thinking it doesn't seem right.

No, she didn't drop a mark. =/

It could always be that she did the question on the paper wrong, but out of pure luck she got the right answer because the question was wrong? Far-fetched I know but it could have happened :P

I need help on this. I've just attempted this and can't figure it out.

What answer have you got for part b and c?

12. in the question it does say "Anthony now agrees to add task 6 to his possible allocations."

which means that A can do either 2,5,6

All you do is start from your matching found in B and proceed as normal, ie find an alternating path...
13. by any chance does anyone have a copy of this paper? would be very helpful for my resit

thankyou
